The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation’s White Coat Campaign is a time-honored tradition providing a white coat and message of encouragement to all first-year students entering medical school in Wisconsin. About 405 students will enter medical school this year, including 26 students at the new Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Green Bay Campus, and the physicians of Wisconsin will welcome them with white coats.

 

In addition to the students attending the MCW-Green Bay campus, next year another 25 students will enter the new MCW-Central Wisconsin Campus in Wausau. With the Foundation’s goal of retaining physicians in Wisconsin, we are pleased to support the students at these new campuses, but we need your help to ensure that the increasing number of students will continue to receive their white coats and welcome.

 

The White Coat Campaign provides a wonderful opportunity to connect the generations and allows practicing and retired physicians to make a difference in the lives of medical students.

 

This year's white coat investiture ceremonies are approaching and sponsors are still needed for close to 30 students. Individual physicians, county medical societies and health care groups are asked to consider sponsoring one or more student white coats.

 

To participate in the 2015 White Coat Campaign, e-mail Heather Sonley, Foundation outreach coordinator, or call her at 608.442.3756 and let her know how many students you would like to sponsor at $75 each. You may also donate online* by entering the dollar amount next to “other amount” and choosing “White Coat Campaign” for the “where your donation should go” field.
